Check Out the Weeknd’s Borderline-NSFW ’50 Shades of Grey’ Music Video

The Weeknd, 50 Shades of Grey, Earned It, video

The new video for the Weeknd’s 50 Shades of Grey soundtrack contribution “Earned It” is really quite racy. This makes sense, given that it was made for a movie based off of a book series that’s essentially soft-core porn, so the parade of women wearing assless panties and barely-there pasties performing before a crooning Weeknd fit right in with the film’s aesthetic.

The video was directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson, who also directed the film. Dakota Johnson, one of the stars of 50 Shades, also appears in the visuals — mostly naked, tied up, and hanging from the ceiling. Watch it above, if you’re into that kind of thing and aren’t at work.
